Description:

Fifty-one superb period photographs are featured in this history of the region around Comrie. Many fascinating, and long-gone, subjects are included - the old stone bridge at Comrie, which was replaced by the current one in 1905; the rope ferry which operated briefly while the new bridge was being built; Dunira House, home in the 1800s to Viscount Melville, the 'Uncrowned King of Scotland'; the railway stations at Comrie, St Fillans, Glenoglehead, Lochearnhead, Balquhidder, Kingshouse, and Strathyre; the very grand Lochearnhead Hotel; the steamer Queen of Loch Earn plying its trade; and the 'camping coaches' at Strathyre - as well as a wealth of local scenes from the era before mass motorcar tourism. Apart from Comrie and Balquhidder, other locations featured are St Fillans, Loch Earn, Lochearnhead, Glenoglehead and Strathyre.
